Whats do you change with the différents position on servo saver ? ackerman , ok but long= more ackerman ??? and the outter or inner position.

thanks for answer

P.S. : julius , if you have a good start set-up for the europeen track , i take it ;-).

Thanks for all

Michel Tomagra from belgium
In theory long or short should not matter as for each color the nm/cm rating is equal for long and short springs (equally stiff when compressed the same amount)

I use long ones in the rear because I feel they look better!

For ackerman: Long and narrow is least. then long wide, short narrow and short wide gives most ackerman.

For a start in europe:

Default Round 1 in WA

Hi guys, well round one is done and dusted here in Perth Western Australia.

i have been fighting with this car for a little while, just couldnt seem to get the car balanced with steering and rear grip. untill last night.
i have found a setup that works a treat for me. Using Xceed tires for the first time, i broke my own lap record that i set with my 720. while others had troubles with getting into the 16's, my 733 was consistantly in the low to mid 16's. so i think qualifying saw the top 3 all Serpent. a 733 then my old 720, and another 733. the final was droped to 10 mins, as we had a late start. on a track from the state titles where i also Tqed (gripped up) the first race of the year, the track wasnt the best, till the sun went down. then came the new fast lap , and just 2 seconds of my PB for 5 mins. the 10 min final i was faster than my TQ on from the states by 1.5 seconds. 36 laps, 2 were flat 17's one mid 17, and the rest all 16's. my average lap was faster than 2nds fastest lap of the race. overall very happy now with my 733. it has rear grip , and alot of steering.
Julius, we once talked about the steering links and the bulkheads, i asked if i could run the links to the hubs underneath, you said it would effect the steering, well i put them underneath, to have ample clearance from the bulkheads, and it fixed the problems, and the car was just dialed. i checked another 733, and yes, the steering links were hitting the bulkheads. so i ask guys to check them for clearance when teh suspension is compressed near full lock. the suspension felt smooth till the links touched the bulkheads, and then went pretty hard .
Cheers , Patto.

great job paul!
regarding the links touching the bulkheads, i've checked mine and only when i pressed down fully till the chassis touches the ground; only then the links would touch the bulkheads.

no issues with me as there're no traces on the links or bulkheads that would indicate rubbing.
